App Happy Wednesday
Even its name fills
With possibilities: “Yes,
You may.” Month of blossoming,
Month of true beginnings
And the soft perfume
Of petals when it rains,
Month of Maia, month of Mary
And month in which to praise
Kept and unkempt gardens
And outdoor days. ~Diana Der-Hovanessian
What a lovely poem about May, written by Diana Der-Hovanessian! I stumbled upon it and wanted to share...I can't believe how May is flying by.
It's time for another App Happy Wednesday...I always look forward to talking about camera apps! I love the apps that allow you to add text to your photos. This image was first put through Snapseed for basic editing, and then I used one of their "Grunge" filters to make it look, well, grungier. I love that for any of the grunge filters in Snapseed, you can adjust it slightly or dramatically to your taste by adding contrast, making it darker/lighter, etc. Next, I put the image into an app called Doodle, where I found the "spring" text. Finally, I moved the image into Mystic, which has some really adorable frames. I chose the dots, which really added a cute final touch.
Also, thanks to all of you who commented on my last post regarding my iPhoto crisis...thank goodness we were able to solve the problem. The photos weren't lost - my Mac just wasn't pointing to their location properly and we had to figure out a way to "reunite" them. With a little Googling we were able to find a solution on how to fix it. Phew. Thanks to all of you for your supportive comments!
This will be my last post for a couple of weeks - we're leaving on Saturday for a Florida vacation. I haven't mentioned it here before, but back in February my husband and I purchased our future retirement home in the Ocala area. Three more years and we hope to move there full-time! Meanwhile, we have to make do with visits south every few months.
I'll be back in the blog world in the first week of June, and hopefully in my "real life" world I'll return home with a nice tan and memories of sunshine and palm trees. Until then, thank you for stopping by!
